If you have a computer that you don't plan on turning off anytime soon you can set up an FTP Server on that computer...All you need is software like Blackmoon's FTP which allows such things...It lets you specifiy a directory (or multiple directories) for your site, and it takes care of the rest...

Be warned though, for a website, you need to grant anonymous users access to those folders and this presents obvious security risks =/


As for how much space they can support, if you run your own: you define it, otherwise, I think you pay for it? I'm not too sure, heh :whistle

I'm doubt (worthwhile) free-FTP services exist, but I might be wrong...Most charge both by space & bandwith (per month), but it's not too much... Myrmid is very reasonable =)

Best of luck =)

Hehe, I stand corrected, but I wasn't too sure to begin with. :whistle I was familiar with such servicies as PhotoBucket, but I assumed the FTP was meant for other files like *.exes, *.rars, etc (in addition to pics). But that one looks rather promising, gj ^*^
